Fears have been raised for Amy Winehouse's performance at this weekend's Bestival festival after she demanded 48 bottles of whiskey ahead of the show
Amy Winehouse has requested 48 bottles of whiskey for her rider at the Bestival festival.
The troubled singer is set to headline the UK music event on the Isle of Wight this weekend (06.09.08), but organisers are worried it could become a disaster after she reportedly demanded the staggering amount of Jack Daniels bourbon.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "It's common for artists to make requests for food and beverages before they arrive. But organisers have heard Amy has ordered in an extremely large amount of Jack Daniel's, in fact, a ridiculous amount that she and her team could not possibly consume during their short stay.
"Naturally there are now fears she is planning something wild. With Amy's record this can mean failure to perform or giving a shambolic performance. Whiskey is better than heroin - but not 48 bottles of the stuff."
'Back to Black' singer Amy is currently facing legal action after pulling out of Paris' Rock En Seine festival last week, citing illness.
A previous request by Amy ahead of a show in Dublin, Ireland, in July included two bottles of red wine, a bottle of vodka, a bottle of brandy, a case of beer and 40 cigarettes.
In July, Amy was hospitalised after collapsing at home, and diagnosed with the early symptoms of deadly lung disease emphysema.
It was also revealed this week Amy had suffered fits after a 36-hour cannabis smoking session also in July.
